Lost in the forest

Four families (mom,dad,son,daughter) are hiking in the woods.
Unfortunately, they get lost.
One family member meets a friendly bear.
The member asks the bear to help find all the families.
The bear suggests spelling a magic word and all moms, dads, sons and daughters will be found!
What is the magic word?

How to proceed
Take aces, kings, queens and jacks of the same suit and place them on the table into four packs.
Pick up the four small packs, make one pile.
Cut the cards while spelling the magic word.

NB: Choose any word you like. I chose the word magic (five letters).

Place the cards, face down, into four small packs : up, right, down, left.
Turn over the cards!
